       Cinderella, or The Little Glass Slipper, (French: Cendrillon, ou La petite Pantoufle de Verre, Italian: Cenerentola, German: Aschenputtel) is a folk tale embodying a myth-element of unjust oppression/triumphant reward. Thousands of variants are known throughout the world. The title character is a young woman living in unfortunate circumstances that are suddenly changed to remarkable fortune. The oldest documented version comes from China, and the oldest European version from Italy. The most popular version was first published by Charles Perrault in Histoires ou contes du temps passé in 1697, and later by the Brothers Grimm in their folk tale collection Grimms' Fairy Tales.
       Although both the story's title and the character's name change in different languages, in English-language folklore "Cinderella" is the archetypal name. The word "cinderella" has, by analogy, come to mean one whose attributes were unrecognized, or one who unexpectedly achieves recognition or success after a period of obscurity and neglect. The still-popular story of "Cinderella" continues to influence popular culture internationally, lending plot elements, allusions, and tropes to a wide variety of media. Read more . . .
       The coloring pages below are based upon a very old European fairy tale version of Cinderella called, "The Little Glass Slipper." I have redrawn and resized them for printing and coloring. Teachers and homeschoolers may print unlimited copies of these particular images for their classroom activities.

In this coloring page Cinderella's step-mother made her do all the hard work
of the house; scrub the floor, polish the grates, wait at the table,
and wash up the plates and dishes.
You can color the picture of the day, Cinderella's two step-sisters received an invitation
 to a ball that was to be given at the palace of the King, in honor of his son
 the Prince, who had just come of age. An invitation to this ball being a great honor,
the sisters were in high glee, and at once began making ready to appear there in
 grand style.
This coloring page shows that Cinderella soon dried her tears; and when her godmother said,
"Fetch me a pumpkin," she ran and got the largest she could find.
This coloring page shows that there was a great stir at the palace when the splendid carriage
was driven up, and Cinderella alighted. The Lord High Chamberlain himself escorted
 her to the ball-room, and introduced her to the Prince, who at once
claimed her hand for the next dance. Cinderella was in a whirl of delight,
and the hours flew all too fast.
Color Cinderella as she jumps up from her seat by the side of the Prince, rushes across
the room, and flies down stairs, at the stroke of midnight.
In this coloring page, the King's son decides he will marry the lady who is able to wear the glass slipper which was dropped
at the late ball at the royal palace.
This coloring page illustrates Cinderella consenting to become the prince's wife. Their wedding soon took place, the festivities attending it being the most splendid that had ever been seen in the kingdom.
